Chris Conway from £250Add to Your Favourites
Chris Conway is a multi-talented American singer and musician based in Leicester. Chris can provide solo cocktail piano and/or vocals and also work with saxophone or guitar to make a duo.
Jazz piano adds a touch of mellow sophistication to any occasion, be it a meal, social gathering, cocktail party, function or conference. With Chris Conway you are in safe hands – 20 years a professional – he has the knack of knowing what is right for any situation and providing the perfect warm ambiance to suit.
Alternating his wonderful swinging piano with his warm soulful voice he plays and sings jazz classics such as Summertime, Girl From Ipanema, My Baby Just Cares For Me, Moon River, and cool modern jazz standards by the likes of Miles Davis and Pharaoh Sanders. If the party kicks up a bit, Chris can go into some Ray Charles hits (Hit The Road Jack, Unchain My Heart) or some blues, Van Morrison or 60s pop like The Beatles, The Mamas & The Papas and even the Beach Boys.
Chris can either play a supplied piano, or bring his realistic sounding electric piano which has the advantage that Chris can play a bass sound with his left hand making for a great full sound. This is no backing track or machine – he really can play jazz bass notes with his left hand while soloing piano with his right and singing at the same time - amazing!
For a fuller jazz experience, Chris can be booked together with a sax player or guitarist. Chris regularly works with saxophonists Andy Nicholls and David Graham.

How completely perfect it was to arrive back from the church, be handed a glass of fizz, and then feel completely sheltered and cocooned from the storm, and listen to your wonderful jazz!
It set the tone for the day so perfectly, helped to make everyone feel relaxed and happy, and get us all in the mood for what went on to become a truly magical day!
Many, many thanks indeed to you both! We were so glad to have you with us, and enjoyed your beautiful music very much indeed. I hope to hear you again sometime...superb!

Paul Boggust - Private Event - 27 Oct 2011
Just a quick note to pass on our thanks to Chris and Andy. They were fantastic and we really enjoyed having them as part of our day.

We have no hesitation in recommending Chris Conway. As well as being an exceptional musician, he was thoroughly professional and a true gentleman. He managed to find the perfect balance of songs to compliment the atmosphere of our wedding breakfast, whilst not overwhelming or upsetting the ambience. He played several of our requests which we were delighted about and many of our guests commented on how well the music fitted in with the atmosphere. Chris will be the first name we think of if we need a musician for any other events.

Thanks for arranging the booking for Chris Conway and Roger Wilson for my mother’s wake at the White Lion. They played beautifully, people really enjoyed the music, and it created a cheerful atmosphere that my mother would have loved.
